Bass Lite deepwater field in the Gulf of Mexico, at water depths of approximately 2,050 m (6,750 feet), commenced operation in February 2008. Natural gas is produced from Bass Lite via a 90-km (56-mile) subsea tieback to the Devils Tower Spar. This project involved several innovations, one of which was the incorporation of a fiber optic sensing system that measures real-time temperature, pressure and strain along the pipeline length. This is a first of its kind innovation that is in actual operation.
